An Architecture for Service Integration and Unified Communication in Mobile Computing
Mobile communication devices often present different wireless network interfaces which allow users to access networked services from anywhere and at any time. Existing services, however, commonly require specific interfaces and infrastructure to operate, and often fail to convey different data flows to a device. Little context information is used in adapting contents to differing devices. This work presents a new context aware architecture for using the Bluetooth interface as a unifying communication channel with mobile devices. Content adaptation is provided as well as a mechanism for offloading services to the support infrastructure. The obtained results show the developed communication model is viable and effective.
